295 even the postern on the east; Krsnappa of .CeSji who conceal- ed his dear self within the fort, did not venture to show himself out; on the death of all his trusted nobles, the one who was defeated was caught in a cage. The Sakamurus, the Ravelas, and the Makarajus became wild animals in frenzy by terror 14 . Krsnappa Kedu said: " Oh! Virappa, the battle has failed; Jaggaraja, among the Ksatriyas fell in the front of the battle- field ; make haste, we must reach Cirutanapalli; Makarapi has already dashed away upon his horse. We do not know how to mount an elephant 5 and (if we remain) death is certain to overtake us outside the camp. Ravela Venkana has begun to flee. One fled at first, and another followed him.'' Vlrappa who listened to these words of his friend, stole away from the field at the sight of Yacama's forces (5). Cina Rautu, Tippu Rautu, Tatapasetti and Gratti Mudali sought safety in flight or.e after another (6). Is it possible for one crore of Gobburi Jaggarajas, seventy crores of Makaraja's fathers, and one lakk and sixteen Ravela. Venkas to oppose Yacama? Can goats make a stand against a fierce tiger ? (7) Oh! Makaraja, you can't stand proudly in the battle-field. Abandon your improper pride; Oh ! Ravela Yenkatadri, this hostility with Yaca is not worthy of you; OK! Jaggaraja, can a weakling attack a fierce tiger bravely V vo) Thirty-thousand heroic warriors under Davala Papa advanced with much foolhardi- ness on you; but Oh I Yaca son of Ranga, you opposed them only with two thousand troops. There is none among the manner who is your peer. (9). Yacama has taken a vow to place the crown of royalty on the head *of Raxnaraja. Even the Three Dunedars dare not face him. Can Etiraja oppose him ? Therefore, having opposed him, Etiraja was obliged to take to his heels (10). When the multitude of chiefs headed by Jaggaraja, being unable to face Rangaya Yaca in battle, took to flight, Kannili was alarmed, Satyavidu trembled^ CeSji fell to pieces ; the frontier forts shook; and in the up to Madura panic prevailed (11).
